Resource Tuner is an advanced visual resource editor for 32 bit Windows executable files which gives users the power to quickly browse and modify executable file resources from within the file. Resource Tuner is a resource editor and modifier and it can also extract icons. With Resource Tuner you can view, extract, edit, modify, translate, or repair the resources contained within 32 bit Windows executable files with the click of a button. Resource Tuner offers a thorough look at all of the resources (bitmaps, jpeg, png, xml, icons, strings, etc) in the file, and allows you to make modifications without needing to recompile the source code. It also allows you to edit the properties of any controls on Delphi forms within the PE file. Because Resource Tuner has itself been written using Delphi, there's a very strong emphasis on peeking inside Delphi applications and packages.
Each element of the user interface - dialog boxes, menus, icons, pictures, toolbars, string tables and more are right at your fingertips. Resource Tuner can handle a variety of different PE ("portable executable") file
types: EXE, DLL, SYS, MSSTYLE, CPL, OCX, SCR and more. Support is provided for nearly every type of resources imaginable. Using XP Visual Style Manifest Wizard, you can now incorporate Windows XP Visual Style into your application. The wizard inserts an XML application manifest into the resource section of the executable, allowing your legacy application to take advantage of the slick new look for common controls featured in Windows XP.
